Today, China is so important. We need to understand why this empire (it is not a country) acts as it does. What are its intentions? This book is not a political analysis, but simply a record of one westerner’s experiences teaching English in Chongqing. Nevertheless, being part of the daily life of ordinary people has given rise to valuable insights. Chongqing is a major city with some 17 million people: it is not a backwater and was China’s wartime capital. But it is important for another reason. The popular mayor when the author began his time there was Bo Xilai, a rival to Xi Jinping; his subsequent removal and imprisonment says a lot.

The author’s daily experiences were fascinating, a real privilege to visit such interesting places and to meet so many wonderful people. These should be shared, which is what this book does.

Greg McEnnally has been teaching English in China for ten years. Prior to that he taught English in Indonesia for a year. In Australia he was a high school Maths and Science teacher and he also taught this in Papua New Guinea for three years. This background has given him some appreciation for other cultures. He loves to travel and while in China has availed himself of every opportunity to do so. This book is the result.
